Introducing The Sophmore Jakes

I was going to start off this feature on Fort McLeod, Alberta’s Sophmore Jakes by saying how that area of Alberta is not exactly a hotbed of rock and roll, yadda, yadda, yadda, you know the typical line when writing about a band from a small town but I don’t think you can readily say that anymore. These days music can filter into any town with a net connection regardless of whether you live on the prairies or up near the Arctic Circle so when the band cites the Clash, the Police, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Blink 182 as influences it’s pretty clear that the spirit of rock and roll infiltrates pretty much anywhere it can thank God.
